Dame Ruth Silver, President of Further Education Trust for Leadership (FETL), invites you to join colleagues working in the FE system and local government at the FETL Spring Symposium.
This Symposium, held in Bristol Parkway, will consider the extent to which institutional, local system, and national priorities align, and ask what policy or cultural changes may be required in order to allow the FE sector to contribute fully to the needs of the country and local communities.
At a time when Combined Authorities and LEPs are being asked to devise local industrial strategies, this timely discussion will bring together stakeholders from across the system and local government to explore how FE can play a more prominent role in addressing a range of policy challenges from raising productivity, the impact of the 4th industrial revolution, and supporting local infrastructure projects.
The symposium will include a networking lunch from 12:30 to 13:30.

The next FETL symposium will be held in Parliament and will focus on the emerging role of technology in further education. EdTech and the application of AI has the potential to transform every aspect of teaching, learning and the education environment – but will it and indeed should it?
In line with the Government’s EdTech Strategy, this event will explore the impact of technology on teaching and highlight some of the latest innovations that are being employed in the classroom and workshop to enhance learning. Specifically, the event will involve students to provide a live demonstration of how virtual and mixed reality can provide a more hands-on educational experience.
The symposium discussion will address the challenges and efficacy of moving towards a more technology centred FE sector.
